Flame Run @ Glassworks presents: Solo Exhibit Featuring artist Mike Amiss
The artist’s blown glass pieces are building blocks for amalgamations that include carpet, fake fur, roofing tile, doll hair and other unlikely items. Amis says his work is “as abstract as possible.” Some of his sculptures resemble tools and household cleaning utensils as well as what he calls “little critters.” Born in Kent, England, Amis was headed for a career as an industrial designer when he earned a diploma in Product Design from Kent Institute of Art and Design. He switched to glass, receiving an MFA at Illinois State University in 1998. He opened his own studio in Bloomington, Ill. in October 2007 where he creates functional designs in addition to his mixed-media sculpture.
